Coaching Framework, Values and the benefits of rhythmic gymnastics
Our coaching framework is Athlete-Centered and follows a tailored programme for long-term athlete development. We focus on the physical and technical preparation for each gymnast to ensure careful and gradual progression towards the perfection of body and apparatus skills. In addition to our gym classes, our clients benefit from our online Parent Portal and Mobile App, where they can instantly book classes, follow their children’s progression, check attendance, receive tokens for make-up classes and more!

Rhythmic gymnastics is a high intensity sport. Our classes are an excellent addition to any child’s healthy lifestyle. The conditioning exercises help our gymnasts gain muscle tone and develop balancing skills, while stretching and active exercises improve their flexibility. In addition, gymnast's coordination skills are challenged and improved via apparatus work – ball, hoop, rope, clubs and ribbon. Even when performed recreationally, the foundation of skills gained from gymnastics can be applied in multiple other sports and social situations, which require commitment, discipline, teamwork and leadership skills.
Rhythmic gymnasts learn how to express themselves through elegant and graceful movements, while showing advanced apparatus work. The virtuosity, flexibility and agility of the gymnast at intermediate and advanced level are truly impressive and always awe the viewer.
